HubSpot Composer

Looks like you can manage the editorial process all within HubSpot!

Craig’s comment: seems a bit underwhelming at this early stage, will be interesting to see how it develops from here. Like how it will paste from Google Docs and clean up the formatting.

Shot 4: Opinion of the Week

Big agency work is going to be under fire from smaller agencies.

For all of their ‘research’ they often miss big players in the market if they don’t understand the industry well.

Understanding your customer’s industries is vital and can’t be substituted with general research.

If you have an intimate knowledge of your business and industry this gives you a distinct advantage over other companies that enter the market and rely on outside research.

Key point: if you write content for other sites, often they won’t let you include a CTA in the content, but they have no problem if you have a SlideShare deck embedded – which itself has a CTA.
